Ulpana Evacuated: Netanyahu Agrees

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has agreed to the evacuation of homes in the Ulpana outpost, which the High Court of Justice had ordered demolished, Channel 2 reported Saturday. The government had previously sought to delay action on Ulpana, and set up a special ministerial meeting to discuss the fate of homes designated as illegal by the High Court. As part of Netanyahu's decision, the government will reimburse and relocate the settlers. In addition, Netanyahu will allow 50 homes to be built in Beit El - 10 times the number of homes being evacuated in Ulpana, Channel 2 reported.
